IRIS invites you to attend a webinar on "Antelope and SAC: An overview 
and short tutorial from a user’s perspective" on October 3, 2012 from 
3-4 pm EDT. This is part of a new webinar series sponsored by the Early 
Career Investigators group: http://www.iris.edu/hq/eci/

Space for 100 attendees during the webinar is available on a first come, 
first serve basis. If you are interested, please register beforehand:

After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing 
information about joining the webinar. Following the presentation there

Summary: Seismologists’ tools of the trade are ever expanding as new 
technology is adopted to efficiently analyze increasing amounts of 
continuous data. It can be overwhelming for those new to the field, and 
for those well ensconced, to sort out the pros and cons of available 
software packages. This webinar will provide an overview and brief 
tutorial on two commonly used software packages available through IRIS. 
Seismic Analysis Code (SAC) has a long history of use in the US and 
provides a powerful set of analysis tools and a common data format for 
time series data. Antelope is a system of modules designed to acquire, 
distribute, archive and process environmental data. IRIS, through 
agreement with Boulder Real Time Technology, provides Antelope to member 
institutions for research purposes and to streamline the acquisition and 
archiving of seismic data. These software packages can be used together, 
and with other programs such as Matlab, to view, manipulate and analyze 
seismic and other time series data. The webinar is intended as an 
introduction to each package from a user’s perspective. Tutorials will 
focus on how SAC and Antelope can be used to organize and analyze local 
earthquake data recorded by temporary seismic experiments and how to 
integrate temporary network data with EarthScope Transportable Array and 
regional broadband seismic network data. The slides will include links 
to other, more complete self-guided tutorials available online.
